Hawke Sport Optics Vantage 3-9x50 AO Rifle Scope, Mil-Dot Illuminated Reticle, 1/4 MOA, 1" Mono-Tube
Featuring low profile, snag-free turrets, you can easily reset your windage and elevation to zero with 1/4 MOA clicks. Have a great day at the range and make your hunting experiences even easier with this riflescope.
The Mil-Dot reticle features multiple aiming points for hold-over and hold-under, and with 4 Mil Dots in each direction, You're on target quickly. The etched class reticle has 5 brightness levels of illumination offered in both red and green. You can turn that off for a solid black reticle.
A good deal for a high-quality scope with illumination! This HD scope is a hunting scope. You'll spend more time shooting and less time fiddling with your scope trying to acquire your target.
Illuminated reticles add another dimension to your shooting because you can adjust the brightness of the mil-dot reticle to suit the ambient lighting conditions. Plus, the red and green colors of the mil-dots let you see your reticle against just about any critter or target
This Hawke Sport Optics scope has an etched-glass reticle, which is superior to a wire reticle because it's finer and therefore much more precise. You'll get even more accuracy from your gun! Another way that etched-glass reticles are superior to wire reticles is when they're illuminated. The etched ones show the illumination only on the reticle. It looks like the reticle is floating. Wire reticles often reflect the illumination in the objective lens, which can be distracting when shooting.

Things I liked: Very clear and bright view through scope. Even when facing towards, but not at the sun there was no distortion in the view. Focus was good and the reticle clear at all times. The cold weather kept me from really checking it out, but initial zero and stability of the reticle is satisfactory for the 40 shots fired in the setup.
Things I would have changed: Make the objective parallax ring easier to turn. It takes considerable force to get it to initially turn, then it loosens slightly. However, when adjusting again later it is very stiff again. The stiffness of the parallax adjustment ring dropped the rating to 4.
What others should know: Make sure you check that your scope mounts are high enough for a 50 mm objective. O.D. of the objective is very close to 64 mm.
Things I liked: I especially like the ability to focus the eyepiece. I had to extend it quite a bit to accommodate my aging eyes. I was able to achieve a crystal clear image. I found the mil dots very useful and the red or green reticules very nice. I haven't had the opportunity to use the adjustable objective yet, I just set it and forgot it. The etched reticle gives peace of mind when using a springer air rifle also.
Things I would have changed: Can't think of a thing.
What others should know: All credit for this purchase goes to the knowledgable customer support personnel at Pyramid Air. This scope was recommended to replace a scope I had ordered which didn't fit my one piece mount also from Pyramid Air which I wasn't willing to replace. This scope, mounted to the one piece mount makes for a very stable system. Pictures don't begin to prepare you for realizing the size of this scope. This is one big scope. My grandson was awestruck when he first laid eyes on it. I plan on buying another air rifle in .22 caliber and will definitely buy another identical scope and one piece mount for it.
Things I liked: Everything
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: I went with hawke because everyone has only good things to say about the brand. Im upgrading from a centerpoint 4x32 and wow that was a beginner scope and got the job done it's a whole new world with his hawke scope. I have this mounted on a Benjamin discovery And using high mounts ofcourse. For the money you cannot go wrong. The objective lens is 50mm and is so clear. The zoom is wonderful and the adjustable objective is spot on. I will always have an AO scope from now on. My life is that much easier haha. Anyway if youre thinking about getting this hust save yourself some time and get it. And let me say pyramid air has the best shipping and packing. My air rifle things from amazon were packaged so poorly i couldnt believe it. Pure amid air really knows how to pack and take care of air rifle products ,I have to give props to their packing team.
